Thank You Jesus!
“And when any will offer a meat offering unto the Lord, his offering shall be of fine flour; and he shall pour oil upon it, and put frankincense thereon”.
Leviticus 2:1 (KJV)
Notice that in our text “fine flour” is likened to Jesus, who like wheat, had been pounded, beaten, and sifted several times. The scripture reminds us of His sufferings and sacrifice for us. Like fine flour there is nothing harsh about Jesus. Everything about Him comes in equal proportions. Every word He spoke and every thought and action He took was fine and lovely. He was flawless beauty and brilliance unlike the other people we see in the Bible. Abraham, though the father of faith, lied about his wife (Genesis 20:1-18). Moses, who is described as the meekest man, struggled with his temper (Numbers 12:3; 20:1-2). Peter was zealous for Jesus yet denied Him three times (Matthew 26:33-34; 69-75). John, who was regarded as the Apostle of Love, wanted to call down fire to destroy the Samaritans (Luke 9:52-54). Paul, who was the Apostle of Grace and blazed the trail of missions, went to Jerusalem even though he was told not to by the Holy Ghost (Acts 21:4; 10-15). Notice that man at his best still fails. The only faultless, flawless, all round lovely is Jesus; we can boldly look up to Him and never be disappointed.
Take time and look at all the examples listed above, as well as many others that I did not mention. You will see that the best of man is still human. This is why the plan for redemption had to be carried out by a God-man. God realised that any man born of a natural birth is subject to error, because the DNA of man is already laden with sin. So to redeem man, God had to step in supernaturally and ensure that the DNA of sin did not get into the seed. This is why Jesus was conceived of the Virgin; that was the only way God could come in the flesh to redeem man. The price for sin had to be paid.
Don’t try to earn this great gift; instead, simply receive it, appreciate it, acknowledge it, and celebrate it.
Thank You Jesus!
